I’m gonna go out and buy me a pair of Dockers tonight I think! Good idea — I’m willing to support them!

Wow... love it! My husband likes Dockers... I’ll show this to him. Maybe he needs to re-stock up on Dockers. ;-)

That IS a pretty good ad! Hopefully it’s on target with the shifting perceptions and values of society.

Prediction: This ad, if ever ever goes national, will last less than a week, the advertising firm will be fired, and the company executives will apologize to offended libtards and pledge money to a number of feminist organizations.

Levi also made a commercial showing how manly men wore Levis. The ad showed guys like John Wayne in jeans, etc. However, they also showed Brando in The Wild One looking totally gay in 50's biker attire and tight jeans. Sort of undermined the point of the ad.

Awesome. And I bet it is very effective. Men want to be men, and our culture for the most part discourages them. About time that trend was reversed.

Well, this is one very feminine woman who is delighted to see this said. I’ve been waiting for the “men” in this country to step up and act like one so I can go back to being all I can be.

There’s an old saying, “You can’t work a horse and ride it, too.” I’m tired of being the old nag in the stable. It is definitely not all it’s cracked up to be.

The only thing I can think of that would’ve made the ad better is if the tagline had been ...

“DOCKERS. Grow a Pair.”

Haha.

Love it. Although I think the last line would have a better ring to it if it said, ...”wear the damn pants.” But that’s just me.

Note to all: Levi's has been anti gun and pro leftist with cash since the 70's.

I suspect this may be a CIAO (Conservative In Appearance Only) con job. Watch the left hand, it's probably in your wallet pocket.

I love the ad. I love real men. I don’t like Dockers, though. They are the equivalent to “Mom Jeans” for men. I buy nice flat front Dickie’s for the hubbie.

Last I knew Dockers were a product of Levi Strauss and Co. Inc. of San Francisco, California. A family of flaming Liberals. I DO mean FLAMING LIBERALS.

It’s a great ad, but makes me wonder if the Strauss’s even know about it.

This is from the same Levis company that has such a problem with Americans owning their own firearms, right?

It would be nice if they really meant it, but their corporate position on a fundamental right of Americans belies the sentiment expressed in the ad.

Levi’s is INCREDIBLY liberal. First company to offer gay marriage benefits. Anti-gun, pro-leftist etc etc.

Try 5.11 tactical pants rather than Dockers. Wear better, fit better, more pockets for your stuff, much more studly all around.

Jerry: Oh, I can’t begin to tell you how much I hate that commercial.

Donna: Really? I like that commercial.

Jerry: All those quick shots of the pants, just pants, pants, pants, pants, pants, pants, pants. What is that supposed to be?

Interesting, but I and many other Scouters and Scouts will never wear Levis nor Dockers or anything else made by Levi Strauss. Have not for nearly 20 years. It was Levi Strauss that led the charge to defund the Boy Scouts of America over the BSA’s refusal to sanction known homosexual men as Scout leaders.

I always urge others, when the subject comes up, to eschew this company and all their products.

May Levi Strauss and Company dry up and blow away.

They’re a day late and a dollar short. I stopped buying Levis/Dockers when they pulled their support from the Boy Scouts for not allowing gay scoutmasters.

Nope, can’t do it. I have a friend in VF corporate (Wrangler) who has me on their company store list. I get Timbercreeks for $12/pair. Unless you see the tag on back you can’t tell the difference between them and Dockers.

I have not bought any Levi’s product in many years, and still refuse to do so. They a huge contributors to the Bell Campaign, which bills itself as the counterpoint to the NRA. They have called for the repeal of the Second Amendment and consider themselves to be modeled after MADD, which proves that they are not about just limiting usage or legal usage, but eliminating them alltogether.
